Second or Third or Possibly 25th Time Around

I actually took a camera like this to camp the summer I was 10 years old. My mama said that she skipped lunch for a month when she was in high school to buy it. It used film that could imprint 8 photographs.
If you didn't roll the film to the next picture's position, it would take a second photo on top of the one that had just been taken. This made for some interesting photography for a ten-year-old. I found this in an antique shop last week. I wonder if it is the same camera that I took to camp that summer.
I have repurposed this item as a knick-knack for now.

What a fantastic 'knick-knack'! It would be so cool if it was the same camera that you had when you were 10.
